    Question &afsrc=1 Should I use it?? If so How?
    Ok I was just reading "How can we stop Freecause?" thread http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=121694 and she stated if we use &afsrc=1 at the end of our affiliate links then they and some other toolbars will not steel our commisions. I read about it here in the past but never thought about it much, but I now see Freecause refering visitors to my sites on a regular bases. I am guessing their toolbar/site has a search tool.

    So my simple question is:

    Do I just add &afsrc=1 at the end of all of my SAS, CJ, LS, GAN, etc affiliate links?? Is their any danager doing this??

    If you use &afsrc=1, you are giving the permission to parasites to steal your commissions if your links don't have it.
    The burden should not be on the affiliate shoulder.
    Anyway, do you really think these thieves respect anything?

    In hindsight I'm convinced that afsrc=1 was nothing but a way to tell the parasites not to pop on each other the rest of the hoopla was just network Bullpucky to feign attempts of compliance.
